I don't know about you guys, but over the years my minimum tip has gone from 25 cents to now $2.00 for most situations. Partly due to having a bit more cash now than when a young man, but mostly due to inflation.

and for many, many situations [the bus tour is an example] $5 to $10 minimum tip...

Of course I can remember putting a dollar or two only in the gas tank just to get myself down the road to a better price. Now I can't stand to waste time like that, but a buck or two in the tank? better make sure you werent on 'empty' or you might not get out of the gas station!
